Contents
Examine and understand the basic concept of international development and sustainability, and identify the key global challenges to sustainable development.

The idea of sustainable development is a key component of debates about environment and international development. Sustainable development is now stated as a principle policy goal of many of the international organizations around the world including the United Nations. The international development and sustainability course focuses on tracing the origins of the idea and understanding why sustainable development is a contested concept. Students are expected to use academic articles as sources while engaging in research.

Relevant data and visual materials will be presented to facilitate students to understand the major topics. Group discussions will be complemented by lectures to confirm students’ understanding.
